There are three important facts you shcr.ld kr.ou’ about ’
the tires you buy—
1. THE FACTS on TRACTION and NON-SKID SAFETYy
A leading university in 2,350 tests has found that the new,
scientifically designed tread on the Firestone High Speed Tire
stops a car up to 25% quicker.
2. THE FACTS on BLOWOUT PROTECTION V
Ab Jenkins used Firestone Gum-Dipped Tires when he
drove his 5,000-pound car over the hot salt beds at Bonneville,
Utah, in the record-breaking time of 127 miles per hour, covering
3,000 miles in 23Vi hours without a blowout or tire trouble
of any kind.
S. THE FACTS on ECONOMY and NON-SKID MILEAGE
The largest transportation companies in the country, such
as Greyhound, to whom safety and tire economy mean business
efficiency, use Firestone Tires from Coast to Coast and from
Canada to the Gulf. And our own test fleet records prove that the
new Firestone High Speed Tire for 1936 gives you up to 25%
longer non-skid mileage.
The Firestone High Speed Tire for 1936 proves by
performance its superiority in all of these three qualifications.
Make this proof of performance your yardstick of safety and
value. Decide today to equip your car with new Firestone High
Speed Tires for 1936—the safest driving equipment money can buy.

Are You Using
Our electric system is designed to carry the maximum
annual load which occurs during the winter months.
This load drops off sharply in the spring due to chang
ing seasons with the result that we have considerable
excess capacity in plants and lines in the period from
March to June. Therefore, during these four months
we are passing on to our customers the use of this
excess capacity by selling all electricity over and above
last year’s bill, pins 5%„ at 2c per K.W.H.
Many of our
have taken advantage of this exceptional offer and
are now enjoying the use of 2c electricity. A con
siderable number have purchased Electric Ranges or
Refrigerators and applied the savings to their pur
chases. Others have used electricity freely at this
exceptionally low rate to lighten the labors of the
home. It will pay you to investigate this offer.

2c Electricity Which Will Be Available
